Is the fact that this is a "short" week in Yahoo have any effect your decision to start him or not?

I think im gonna go with him considering my era's already shot with Slowey :-° . If I was sitting better I'd probably see how the first one goes before throwing him into a line up

Absolutely I am. He's been hitting 98 mph and pitching lights out in his rehab starts.

Me too. Starting pitching is my strength this year for a change and Volquez will add to it.

Sure. Colorado's lineup has not been especially scary away from Coors.

Of course, I have him only in a H2H, where innings max is not a factor.

No point not to after Haren destroyed my ERA and WHIP - I even thought it was a good start in San Diego. Sigh.
